Legend of Santa Maria Huatulco

An old man told us one of them in a grove of mango and bougainvillea shade; he said that some years ago, when he was just a boy, it rained so hard for several days that many springs appear everywhere. As usual, they continued working on their chores. One afternoon of those wet days it rained fish and Chacales. Believe it or not, they were salt water fish but, the sea is about 20 kilometers at least. The living fish and Chacales twisted strongly as they slapped onto the ground. Local people, instead of wonder what was happening, collected as much as they could that memorable day. It is supposed that a tornado sucked the fish off the ocean and sent them to the hills and did so in nearby streams of fresh water with the Chacales.
